<p>Prisoner. Please you my Lord. My Mother is a Dealer in Coal, and my Mother ow'd a Gentleman two Guineas. And my Mother gave me two Guineas to pay him. As I was coming along, I happen'd to go into a House to call for a halfpenny-worth of Annifeed . Seeing this Man I took no Notice at all: I got my Dram and came away; as I came into Whitechapel, the Prosecutor ask'd me to drink a Pint of Beer: Upon that he forced me; upon which I call'd for the Watch: When I call'd for the Watch, I charg'd him: And when I came to the Watch-House, he made the Watchman charge me. He took from me two Guineas, the Money I was about to pay away. The Watchman gave the Money to the Constable.</p>

<p>Q. To what Purpose did he bring it to you?</p>
<p>Carter. To sell, my Lord. He ask'd me 14 d. the Pound for it. I ask'd him what it was. He said it was the Head of a large Furnace. I ask'd him what he was, and he said, a Distiller. I said it was very odd, that you should be a Distiller, and ignorant what it was. My Lord, he told me that he liv'd at Henly upon Thames, that he was a Distiller, had come to Misfortunes, and must sell it. So when I question'd him about it, he said, if you don't like it, or don't think that I came honestly by it, I'll leave it, and go fetch a Person to my Character. With that I told him I would not have the Things left, without he said himself. At last, a Gentlewoman, a Widow of a Common-Council-Man of our Ward, who was some Relation to the Prisoner's Father, desir'd me not to charge an Officer with him. He equivocated in several Shapes. At last, he said, his Wife had bought these Things of a Woman that sold Rags and old Iron. Said I, what do you imagine your Wife might give for it? He insisted upon it, that she might give a Great 2 Pound. He told me his Father liv'd in St. Giles's, and
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174602260010"/> also his Brother. They directed me to the Prisoner's House, but his Wife deny'd him. I went in the Broad-Way, Westminster. I ask'd there, if there were not several Gentlemen that keep Distiller's Shops thereabouts. Pray do you know any one in particular, I said. They said, pray what is your Business? This Morning I stopp'd a Copper Funnel, which I imagine was some Gentleman's Property hereabouts, because the Person lives hereabouts that brought it. Upon this we went to a Person of the Business, Mr. Lowrey; and it appear'd that he was the Person that had lost the Funnel. Upon that we charg'd the Constable with the Prisoner. From that we went before the Justice and he was committed upon a Suspicion, because then Mr. Lowrey had not seen it. The next Day Mr. Lowrey came to me to see the Funnel, and swore it was his.</p>

They brought a parcel of People into the House, and stopp'd me and frighted me. They ask'd me whether I had any Money in my Pocket. But the Broker said, he would stop me with it, but not charge me with the Constable, and wanted me to run away. I sent to my Father to Broad St. Giles's ; and when my Brother came, he made him Pay 6 d. for sending his own Boy. The Broker told me I had a pretty deal of Impudence to ask 10 d. the Pound for it .</p>
<p>Council for the Prisoner . I'll only mention this, that if this Man had been conscious he had committed the Felony, 'tis certain he might have made his Escape.</p>
<p>Barthia Whitefield . I went to Mr. Wilson's, the Prisoner; he said to me, don't you never light on no Copper Pots, no distilling Things, I can see them lie about in Shops. The first Thing I ever took was two Funnels, and he bought them of me. About a Fortnight after, I took this large Funnel. I was in Company with him at the Time I took it.

<p>In order to set this Matter in a clearer Light, we shall give the Close of his Lordship's Charge to the Jury. Gentlemen, you are to put the whole Matter together. The Evidence seems to lie pretty strong against Wilson. His having stolen the Goods in Possession, carrying them about in a suspicious Manner, as I find he was found in three different Stories, these are strong presumptive Evidences of Guilt. What he has to take off that Presumption was, that he was instrumental in apprehending of Barthia Whitefield; if you would make any Use of her Evidence, it must be taken together : That is, that she did steal it, but that Wilson was present at the Time that she took it.</p>

<p>Halberd. I am a Diamond-cutter by Trade; but I have been a Porter for some Years behind the Royal-Exchange .</p>
<p>Q. What have you to say to this Matter ?</p>
<p>Halberd. I had been home with my Master that I did Business for; he had been drinking at the Angel, at one Mr. Pauling's; he order'd me to attend upon him with a Link. I was coming home to Crowder's-Well-Alley: As I was coming along, over-against Row-Church, I saw this Woman and the Prisoner at the Bar: So, says I, how do you do. I had known her by coming up and down the Street. Phillis, said I, how do you do; if you think proper to go my Way, you shall partake of the Light of my Link: With that, this Woman insisted upon the Prisoner at the Bar to drink; the Prisoner made Answer, she would not drink with her at all, she did not like her. The Prosecutor answer'd, If you won't drink with me it will be worse for you by and by. With that, I said to Phillis at the Bar, I can't stay, God bless you, I wish you good Night. In about two or three Days after she sent for me to Wood-Street Compter: That is all I know of it .</p>

<p>Basson. My Lord, he brought to my House, on the 30th of January, 140 Ounces of Gold Plate , or Silver gilt Plate; out of the Parcel he took 10 Ounces and a half. I receiv'd the Whole in Custody, and I never perceiv'd any was missing 'till last Saturday, when I sent to the Person that employs me; he said we had no such Parcel, it wanted 10 Ounces and a half. The Prisoner had alter'd the Paper and forg'd another Paper, and so made it 10 Ounces and a half less. The Gentleman told him, this is not the Paper, this is not my Hand, this is your own Hand.</p>

<p>Q. What did the Girl say upon being charg'd with taking the Pot?</p>
<p>Robinson. Said, she knew nothing of it.</p>
<p>Q. How did her Grandmother treat her all this Time?</p>
<p>Robinson. The Grandmother said, she was positive none had been there but her. And said, if Goodsense would not own where the Pot was, she would make Mr. Woodward send her to Jail. They told her she should not be hurt if she would tell the Truth. But at last she said, she knew the Girl that had took it away. Then they went to enquire after this Girl. She mention'd the Girl that was along with her at taking it away. The Girl that she said had taken it away, had not seen her that Day. I heard the little Girl, Goodsense, say, the Person's Name was Hull , that bought the Pot .</p>
<p>Q. Who sold it?</p>
<p>Robinson. She sold it herself.</p>
<p>Q. Did she say that she took it?</p>
<p>Robinson. She told her Grandmother, that she took it from the Entry of the Door of her Grandmother's Passage .</p>
<p>Q. What Age is the Girl ?</p>
<p>Robinson . I think her Mother says she is 15 To-morrow.</p>
<p>Q. Have you any Thing more to say?</p>

<p>Q. What is the Mother committed for?</p>
<p>Robinson. Why they said, the Mother was with the Girl when they took the Money for the Pot .</p>
<p>Q. How is that prov'd?</p>
<p>Robinson. It does not at all appear.</p>
<p>Q. Have you any Thing more to say?</p>
<p>Robinson. The Mother knew nothing of it.</p>
<p>It appear'd to the Court that the Mother had acted a commendable instead of a criminal Part. And the Girl being so young, and the Confession seeming to be extorted from her, they were both

<p>Q. What have you to say against either of the Prisoners ?</p>
<p>Pearson. Please you, my Lord, two Women came to my Shop in order to buy Stockings, as they pretended .</p>
<p>Q. Did they come together?</p>
<p>Pearson. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. What then?</p>
<p>Pearson. They cheapen'd some Stockings. They wanted some green Stockings with red Clocks. They told me they wanted something more ordinary. My Servant brought some, but they would not give so much for them; A Person had been there before and gave but so much. My Wife, as they seem'd to be poor Girls, desir'd they might have them. The little Girl would not give so much as 22 d. for them, which was their own Price. I bid them get them gone, they did not come to buy. A Neighbour came to me, and said, please to examine your Stockings, whether you have not lost any. There were two Dozen upon the Compter. I examin'd the Stockings, and there were two pair gone.</p>
<p>Q. How long was this after the Women were gone?</p>
<p>Pearson. About a Minute. Says this Man that stands here, if we go out, I believe we shall overtake them. When I overtook I laid hold of them, and said, go back to my House: With that the beggar-Woman took one of the Stockings and threw it over some Pallisades . So then I brought them to

<p>Q. After this, what did you do farther?</p>
<p>Pearson. Please you my Lord , I brought them to my House , and we thought it proper to have an Officer. They call'd me Rogue, and the like. Upon this we had them before a Justice.</p>
<p>Q. Did they deny it? As to these Stockings produced, these are odd Stockings; were they upon your Compter at that Time ?</p>
<p>Pearson. Yes, please you my Lord, in Pairs, in 24 Pairs .</p>
<p>Q. Can you recollect that particular Stocking you saw the little one throw away, are you sure it was one of them?</p>
<p>Pearson. I did not take it off the Pallisades. This Man, the other Witness , took it off.</p>
